Title IV-A

ESSA, Title IV, Part A, Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Program

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law in December 2015. It reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Newly authorized under subpart 1 of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA is the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) program. The SSAE program is intended to improve students’ academic achievement by increasing the capacity of State educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and local communities to provide all students with access to a well-rounded education; improve school conditions for student learning; and improve the use of technology to improve the academic achievement and digital literacy of all students.

Well-Rounded Educational Opportunities

One of the three purposes of the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) program is to provide all students with access to a well-rounded education as a means of improving academic achievement. Ensuring all students have access to a holistic well-rounded education is central to the shared work across programs in the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA).

Safe and Healthy Students

One of the three purposes of the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) program is to improve school conditions as a means of improving academic achievement. Ensuring all students are healthy and feel safe and supported is central to the shared work across programs in the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA).

Effective Use of Technology

One of the three purposes of the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) program is to improve the use of technology as another means to achieve academic achievement. Specifically, by promoting digital literacy of all students and providing professional development to the educators that teach and support them. In order to ensure that all students build the capacities necessary for thriving as 21st century learners and workforce contributors, program initiatives fall under three categories, Digital Citizenship, Personalized Learning and Improving Equity for All Learners.
